Creekland Middle School’s team earned the title by remaining undefeated, 10-0, through the competition between 43 teams on Saturday in Gwinnett County.

Team members Captain Joseph Satterfield and Hampton Barrineau, Justin Bolsen, Er’el Moyal, Jordan Moyal, Cal Pace and Sean Yates are coached by teachers Dr. Mark Nazemzadeh and Eli Rollman.
